CRH Transfer Center Created for Providers and Hospitals
Cody, Wyo. (Sept. 1, 2020) – Cody Regional Health (CRH) Emergency Medical Services recently launched
their new Transfer Center, a place designated for all physicians and Big
Horn Basin Wyoming hospitals.
All providers and hospitals in the Big Horn Basin can now call one phone
number to set up a transfer coming into Cody Regional Health. In the near
future, the CRH Transfer Center will eventually include transfers leaving
Cody Regional Health as well.
“When we say “transfer” it means a patient from another
hospital needing to seek a higher level of care. This happens if a requesting
facility is unable to provide or doesn’t have the services the patient
requires,” said Phillip Franklin, Cody Regional Health EMS Director.
“We want the transferring physicians and organizations to be comfortable
knowing that they only have to call one number to CRH to initiate transfer
process to allow them to focus on the patient prior to transfer,”
stated Doug McMillan, Cody Regional Health CEO.
The Cody Regional Health Transfer Center has a “one call” phone
number everyone can call to reach a transfer center coordinator. The Transfer
Center is staffed 7-days a week from 8:00 AM to 8:00 PM.
If a transfer is requested after 8:00 PM, physicians and hospitals will
call the same phone number, but the line will ring over to Cody Regional
Health’s Acute Care Unit clerks, who have been trained in all transfer
“This has been a learning process for everyone, but we are excited
to be able to offer this new service through our EMS department,”
